Halloween Party Games
Some of my favorite childhood memories are from our Halloween parties when I was a kid. My mom would go all out decorating the house and making ghoulishly good party snacks and treats.
Our favorite Halloween party games centered around bobbing for apples and reaching inside bags to try and figure out what sort of ghastly delights were at the bottom – spaghetti guts, anyone?

Today’s Halloween party games are a bit tamer. Take this easy Halloween popper craft for example. It’s super fun to make and can be used to see who can shoot marshmallows or pompoms the farthest distance.
As a mom of boys, I know that any craft for kids that shoots projectiles is a win-win.
Halloween Party Game for Tweens
Now before you start thinking that this Halloween party popper is just for younger kids, let me assure you that tweens and teens love it too.
Just ask my 15 and 17-year-olds who kept insisting that they do “quality control” to see if the pumpkin popper would adequately pop. Rest assured, it did. Even after about 100 rounds of popping fun.
If your tween is having a Halloween party this year – or if you are a tween who’s looking for a fun Halloween party game – this pumpkin popper is a definite win.
